Fusing traditional and digital methods, I seek to create quirky and bizarre illustrations by combining humour with fantasy that may be based on elements of everyday life. Exploring oddities through the playful use of scale, sometimes offering visual clues to the direction of the story, I endeavour to get lost in my characters and narratives; and to allow others to do the same.
